Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #183 – “100 Black Coffins,” from Django Unchained


183. “100 Black Coffins,” from Django Unchained

I don’t know where the decision was made to put modern songs on the soundtrack to this movie, but somehow it works. How amazing is that James Brown/Tupac mashup? That’s not original, so I couldn’t include it on the list, but it’s great.

It’s only half related to the song. It sounds like a Rick Ross song they retrofitted for the movie, but that’s fine. They put the clip at the beginning and it plays during the movie, so it counts. And it’s just a fun song. It’s not high art, but it gets the job done.
